Over the winter months, Vicken Parsons produced a new body of blue paintings from her studio in Norfolk. Cristea Roberts is presenting these eight works for the first time in this Online Viewing Room. Small in scale, painted in thin layers of oil on wood, they depict a series of architectural spaces which feel large and endless, in spite of their size. At a time when many of us are bound by the restrictions of lockdown, these paintings offer us some respite and escape.
“If you were to ask me what my favourite colour is I’d say blue. But years go by when I can’t work with it at all and then, suddenly, there it is again. I think a need for blue has emerged with this bleak winter lockdown, a need for the sensation of infinite space, somewhere for the mind to go while physical life is isolating and constrained. I realised this in retrospect when I found myself surrounded by this group of blue paintings in the studio.” Vicken Parsons, 2021
